Ho Ho Ho Haiku

The stockings are hung,
And the bushes have their lights.
We just need the tree.

Boys' are together
And the girls' are side by side
Ready to be filled!

Christmas is coming
Along with the Advent wreath
Fetters wear red socks!

Know it's inside joke,
But the card is hung with pride
One of first received

Santa's nose is red
One assumes it's from the cold
Mine's red from blowing

I really should sleep
Tomorrow will be here soon
Yet on I ramble

Such bad poetry
Seems easy when exhausted
Later? Embarrassed.

Off to bed I go
Sugarplums dance in my head
A Hershey kiss first...

On Friday, will read
All the haikus of my friends
and have my regrets

So now, a goodnight
Parting is such sweet sorrow--
My pillow does call.
Join in the bad poetry fun with Laura at Catholic Teacher Musings' Fa-la-la Bad Haiku Festival!
Merry Christmas!

The oriental message was asking, "WHO HAS THE BIG STOCKING??"

and, I want to know...was that hershey's kiss a real candy kiss or a play on a sweet goodnight kiss?

Thanks for the chuckles!
